Never A Dull Moment

Well, I've gone and broken a bone in my left foot. The good news is I don't need surgery on it. The bad news is that my right foot is the one still hurting with plantar fasciitis, and now it has to support all of my weight, as I'm on crutches for at least two weeks. And how did I break the bone? By tripping over my own feet, apparently. I'm open to better stories, as this one is a lame one. (lame, get it? I crack myself up.)


  1. Hee, hee. I laughed too as soon as read it. At your joke...not the broken foot. Those little bones are so easy to break. I recall how much mine hurt. I've no experience with the p.f. but it sounds like lousy timing. Of curse you planned it. On the plus side, what else can you really do but knit and read?

  2. Oh no, I hope you are healing quickly. Think of it this way you will have to rest a bit with yarn in your hands, bummer.

  3. Hmmm. I think you may have just failed your bone density test this year.

    So sorry you're hurting, and worse, on crutches during summer weeks of leisure. Sucks.

  4. LOL! I've been known to trip over dust mites. One group of co-workers bought me a construction helmet because I trip so often!

    I'll be in Wmsburg Tuesday night through Sunday morning. Any free time?

  5. So sorry to hear about your accident. I do hope you are feeling well enough to use the time as an excuse for more knitting. This might be the perfect time for a small project and some audio books. Think socks, tea cozies, lace scarves... Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

  6. Well, at least you can still knit. Hope it is feeling better soon.

  7. So sorry you're laid up......just when summer arrives too. Hope you start to mend soon and can enjoy your time off.
